Thanks for working here this week: Cori Matheny, RN, CCMH Medical Surgical Unit

Campbell County Health is proud of its employees, and we want the CCH family and the Campbell County community to know about the good work that they do for this organization.

Allow us to introduce Cori Matheny, RN, who works in the Campbell County Memorial Hospital Medical Surgical Unit in Gillette, Wyoming. Cori earned her education at the Gillette College Nursing Program and has worked for CCH for one year.

For those who don’t know, Med/Surg nurses practice in a stimulating, and demanding, setting. Many will say it’s not for the faint-hearted, but the work is very rewarding. Nurses on this unit can care for patients across many age levels, with a huge variety of disease categories or injuries, and with different degrees of acuity. The must be knowledgeable about all age groups, from infants to geriatrics, which can make working on the unit a challenge because of the variety of the patients.

Cori says that there isn’t just one thing that inspired her to work in health care. “I went into nursing school and upon graduating fell in love with nursing. I have a true appreciation for what I do and am proud of my contribution to my community, and wouldn’t change my career path for anything,” she says.

Cori says she is constantly telling Patricia Heald, RN, that she wants to just like her when she grows up. “Patricia’s ability to keep her cool in rapidly changing situations and her nursing skills are something I aspire to have,” Cori says.

When she’s not at work, Cori says she loves spending time with her kids and husband. “We enjoy anything outdoors, or just staying in and watching movies,” she says.

We asked Cori what she likes most about working for CCH, and what excellence every day means to her. Check out her response:

“I love the work environment. The staff we have are willing to jump into any challenge and help anyone. They definitely make you feel like you are a part of the team.

Excellence every day to me means that I will give my patients and staff members 100% every day that I am at work, or even when I am out in the community. Seeking out opportunities to further my education and to better my skills in nursing is important in making sure that the nursing care that I provide is excellent, and my very best.”

Thank you, Cori for being such a wonderful caregiver. We appreciate you!
